We regard sport as an important part of the pupils' education and for many boys it is a highlight of their day. Educationally, we regard it as important that all pupils should take part and that all should have the opportunity to represent the school in one of the many teams. Sport's value extends beyond the pleasure of playing and pupils learn much from taking part about team work, handling success and failure, and determination and perseverance.

Brockhurst is competitive in its major prep school games but we also place considerable weight on excellence in minor sports and we have the facilities to do so. For pupils who are not first team players in the major sports of Football, Rugby and Cricket, the minor sports offer great opportunities for enjoyment and success and often unlikely pupils discover facets of sporting talent which have marked benefits for their self-esteem and confidence.

At Brockhurst outdoor games are played every day.

Autumn Term

Soccer, hockey and swimming

Spring Term

Rugby, hockey, cross-country running and swimming

Summer Term

Cricket, athletics, swimming and Tennis

Boys who are particularly talented at a game are encouraged to develop their skills by playing at County/Academy or National level and we make provision to help them to do so whilst keeping up their academic work.


'Pupils consistently gain places at their first-choice selective senior schools and many win scholarships.'
